One of the major causes of concern with viruses is that they do not remain the same but they evolve over time significantly. After a vaccine has been produced that is effective against one strain of a virus, this does not mean that the vaccine will be equally effective against emerging variants of that virus. - Scientists are trying to determine how effective COVID-19 vaccines are against new variants.
Like all organic forms, viruses evolve. The changes that take place - often called mutations - can bring about versions of a virus that are significantly different from the original version detected. Sometimes a new strain can be more transmissible, sometimes it can cause more severe disease and sometimes it can simply cause more cases (and increased hospitalization). The Centers for Disease Control and other bodies pay close attention to the variants of SARS-CoV-2 and other viruses as they are emerging. Learn more at: 'What You Need to Know about Variants'
A variant of a virus that exhibits qualities making it potentially more dangerous to humans in some way, is called a 'Variant of Concern' and the CDC has defined this as: "A variant for which there is evidence of an increase in transmissibility, more severe disease (e.g., increased hospitalizations or deaths), significant reduction in neutralization by antibodies generated during previous infection or vaccination, reduced effectiveness of treatments or vaccines, or diagnostic detection failures."
Obviously, it is a genuine health concern when a virus such as SARS-CoV-2 mutates into a more perilous variant. - For example, the Delta Variant is of particular concern as it is almost 100% more contagious than the original strain, identified in 2019, and it has infected fully vaccinated individuals. The Omicron Variant, on the other hand, has caused a massive increase in cases, and even though those cases have been less severe, the massive increase in hospital admissions has strained health services.
The international scientific/medical community are observing to what degree the new variants of SARS-CoV-2 respond to vaccination. In the graph above it can be seen that the efficacy of three different vaccines against symptomatic infection by the Alpha and Delta variants has been almost universally lower. However, it is to be noted that additional data confirms that the efficacy of these three vaccines above (Pfizer/AstraZeneca/Moderna) against hospital admissions has increased.
What does seem obvious, at this point, is that given the potential of viruses to alter and evolve in different ways - sometimes resulting in the decrease in efficacy of vaccines against new strains - means that we need be open to all forms of protection from and treatment for viral illness. If it really is true that particular components of nutrition can deter viruses and enhance the responsiveness of the immune system, then this needs to be investigated.
What has been sufficiently established through COVID-19 research already undertaken, is that the 'nutritional status' of the person who has been infected - the level of key nutrients in their body - appears to be one of the core factors determining disease progression. The level of specific vitamins, minerals and other micronutrients in a person's body is a determining factor in whether they become more ill or get better. It has been observed by food science over a long time that the presence of micronutrients has key impact on the immune system.

Learn how to protect you and your family from viruses more effectively by discovering the 52 'dietary antivirals' to include in your meals, snacks and drinks every day. Boost your immunity and fight diseases the natural way.
An 'Anti-Viral Diet' has been extensively corroborated by science and is gradually being accepted as an integral part of how people may protect themselves against viruses and treat viral illnesses - one other option to make use of alongside vaccines and antiviral medications. However, Food Science does not currently receive even 1% as much financing as pharmaceutical or vaccine-related research. 10% of the profit from sales of the 'AVD' book are being donated towards essential projects in Anti-Viral Dietary Research.

Edouard d'Araille - Project Lead of Phase 1 of the 'AVD Research Project' - writes about an 'Anti-Viral Diet' that: "Regarding the effects of diet on disease, it is known that healthy, balanced nutrition has greater impact on immunity to viruses than any single vaccine. Science has proven this beyond a shadow of doubt."
'AVD' is a 3-Phase Research Project launched by The Academy of the Third Millennium (A3M). Phase 1 of this scientific inquiry is now complete and a summary of the findings are presented in the volume 'AVD: The Anti-Viral Diet' (2020-2022) available from this site. Information about the progress and purpose of Phases 2 and 3 of this ongoing A3M research program will be shared here soon and at the website A3M.International.
